It is somewhat hard to find a good £20+ welcome gift these days. Grosvenor is offering such a bonus, but there are strings attached. (It’s the ol’ ‘you must wager five times your first deposit of £20’ in order to collect the gift.) The £20 seems like a welcome gift the way Grosvenor presents it, but it’s actually a 100% first deposit bonus up to a mere £20.
What Gives, Grosvenor?
Most casino gaming sites offer something in the hundreds of pounds in this kind of welcome-bonus scheme, so our first hit off Grosvenor is that its sign-up package is lacking. We wonder, though, whether there is a reason. Many of the very biggest sites like Virgin do not give much up-front, banking on their own name, so is that Grosvenor’s confident strategy?
Well, as it turns out, Grosvenor casino operates nearly forty brick-and-mortar casinos across the UK. That’s the one! We must say, there is definitely something comforting playing with an online casino that is, in a sense, backed up by land-based casinos.
There are a few surprises at GrosvenorCasinos.com. One is its uncommon inclusion of live-dealer casino rooms for the Web players (dealt by gorgeous ladies, many from Latvia, incidentally). Another is nearly twenty TV-themed games including:
- The X-Factor Jackpot
- Deal or No Deal
- Britain’s Got Talent – Superstar
- Wheel of Fortune
- Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?
You can also enjoy virtual sports betting (dogs or horses). And what do you know! If you are a poker player then you will get a separate sign-up bonus up to £500!
Yes the poker action at Grosvenor is something of a sleeper — you might not know this new casino site has so strong a hand with this game. There are five intense versions for you to master:
- Jacks or Better Video Poker
- Texas Holdem Shootout
- Lucky Draw Jacks or Better
- Texas Hold’em Bonus
- Three Card 2nd Chance Poker
Also, mobile games are available. It would appear that Grosvenor specializes only in iPhone casino games, but if you click ‘compatible handsets’ you will see one of the most straightforward lists of phone models we have ever found. Evidently, these games are available on a host of older phones (Java-based game apps), and the iPhone. But when you go a little further, voila, you find that there is an Android game app after all!
So, all in all, Grosvenor is a pretty low-key website with a local sort of appeal. Although you may not have heard the name yet, Grosvenor is rather well-known, which explains why this gaming company does not feel it needs to use big rewards to entice players. The chances are that its mobile games are primarily a service extended to its existing clientele. That is the sense we’re left with.
Still, there are some good extra promotions, like monthly cash-back up to £100, or the iPad giveaway, a £50 cash-back on table mobile games, on so on. So what you’ve got here is potentially a very cozy online destination, one to trust, and that is rare indeed. There’s only one way to find out if this is too good to be true!
